Exterior Wood Staining 

To assure the highest quality results when applying exterior wood stain, follow these steps and helpful tips.

  1. Use the right brush. Use a natural-bristle brush for oil stains and a synthetic-bristle brush for latex stains.
     

  2. Mix the stain thoroughly before you begin and frequently while you're staining. This helps keep the color consistent throughout the project.
     

  3. Before proceeding, apply the stain on a discreet area of wood to test the color.
